This week we have been learning about rainbows and creating some fun crafts, but I have to say that this might be the girls favorite one of the week! Sensory bins are such a great idea to let children explore and learn while playing, so I thought that this Color Exploration Sensory Play Table would be a great idea!
Color Exploration Sensory Play
- Water table or large bin
- Shaving cream (3-4, I used 2 but wished I had 2 more cans)
- Food colors (I also used some gel food coloring and the colors became brighter)
- Mixing bowls
We used our outside water table for our sensory play this week. It was really easy to make and the girls had a blast, but I have to warn you, it is very messy and by the end of the activity your child’s hand might look like an aliens! But it’s SO MUCH FUN 🙂
I used mixing bowls to spray the shaving cream in and then added 5-8 drops of food coloring. I noticed that the colors were not coming out bright enough for me, so I added some gel food coloring and that did the trick! Using a spoon just mix your shaving cream and food coloring completely.
If you use a bin I think it would look so cool if you line up the colors in a row, which is what I wanted to do, but I couldn’t find my bins. At the last second I had to improvise and use our water table, but it worked out great!
I would say that the girls had some great messy Color Exploration Sensory fun!
